PowerKVM

IBM PowerKVM provides server virtualization based on open source Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) Linux technology. The PowerKVM virtualization technology allows sharing of real compute, memory, and I/O resources through server virtualization. These virtual resources are used by virtual machines that are running on the PowerKVM virtualized server.

Server virtualization with PowerKVM allows optimization and overcommitment of resources like CPU and memory. This allows clients to achieve superior agility, flexibility, and resource utilization, resulting in reduced cost-through-scale economies. It provides the ability to move VMs and workloads by using Live Migration without taking application downtime, thereby increasing overall availability and flexibility. The solution leverages existing Linux administration skills for virtualization administration and open administration tools like OpenStack to potentially reduce the overall cost of operating and owning this virtualization solution. PowerKVM also includes a local graphical virtualization administration tool called Kimchi that greatly simplifies initial setup and basic virtualization operation.

Power 8348-21C system configuration

The minimum Power 8348-21C initial order must include: one processor module, 128 GB of memory, one LAN adapter, two power supplies, two line cords, rack-mounting hardware, a system software indicator, a rack integrator specify, and a Language Group Specify.

Linux is the operating system. The minimum defined initial order configuration is as follows:

Processor modules

One processor module is used in a Power S812LC. The eight processor core module is ordered with feature EP0A. The ten processor core module is ordered with feature EP0B. All processor cores are activated. There is no option to change the processor module from a feature EP0A to feature EP0B or vice versa after is has been manufactured.

System memory (DRAM)

The Power S812LC has 32 memory slots. The minimum number of these slots filled is either 16 or 32 with one exception. And the minimum memory capacity is 128 GB with one exception. The one exception is that only eight 4 GB DIMMs can be used, providing only 32 GB total memory if ordering the feature EHJW quick-to-order configuration. Configurations using a different number of DIMMs are not supported.

Mixing of memory features in not allowed. Use all 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB, or 32 GB DIMMs. Therefore, plans for future memory upgrades should be considered when you decide which memory feature size to use at the time of initial system order.

Memory features

Eight 4 GB DIMMs only supported with feature EHJW quick-to-order configuration.

For peak bandwidth, use at least 16 DIMMs. Note that for the very largest system memory configuration (1 TB) the peak memory bandwidth is slightly lower. But for many applications the larger amount of memory may be more significant than this bandwidth reduction.

  • The first 16 DIMMs plug into memory slots C3®, C5, C6, C8, C11, C13, C14, C16, C19, C21, C22, C24, C28, C30, C31, and C33.
  • The second 16 DIMMs plug into the remaining memory slots.
  • If using the exception configuration of eight 4 GB DIMMs with the feature EHJW configuration, use slots C3, C5, C11, C13, C19, C21, C31, and C33.

PCIe slots

The S812LC has four PCIe Gen3 low-profile

  • Slot 1 is x8 half-length slot, which is not CAPI enabled and shares bandwidth with slot 2.
  • Slot 2 is x8 full-length slot, which is not CAPI enabled and shares bandwidth with slot 1.
  • Slot 3 is a x16 full-length slot, which is CAPI enabled and does not share bandwidth.
  • Slot 4 is a x8 half-length slot, which is CAPI enabled and does not share bandwidth.

Note that the feature EN0T PCIe Ethernet adapter is not supported in slot 1.

If disk or SSD is placed in a SATA bay in front of the server, the one or two slots will be used for a PCIe RAID adapter.

PCIe slots are not hot plug and scheduled downtime is required to safely add or remove a PCIe adapter.

Blind swap cassettes are not used. See the list of features for supported PCIe adapters.

SATA Storage Bays and Drives

The Power S812LC has 14 SATA bays for either HDDs or SSDs. Each bay includes mounting hardware for a larger form factor (LFF) or 3.5-inch drive or a small form factor (SFF) or 2.5-inch drive. There is no ordering feature number required for the 14 bays.

Two of the bays are in the rear of the server and are controlled by a storage mezzanine card (#EC3Q). Both these bays are located on a single tray on carrier. Withdrawing the tray from the server pulls both bays from the server. Physically moving one drive also moves the second.

Twelve of the bays are in the front of the server and are controlled by a PCIe RAID adapter (either #EC3S or #EC3Y). These bays do not share a carrier or tray and can be independently moved.

SATA HDD options:

  • 1 TB 7.2k RPM 5xx SATA LFF Disk Drive (#ELD2)
  • 6 TB 7.2k RPM 5xx SATA LFF Disk Drive (#ELD4)

SATA SSD:

  • 960 GB Read Intensive SATA 5xx SFF SSD (#ELS2)

See the base and quick-to-order configuration descriptions for the minimum configurations orderable. After the server is shipped from IBM manufacturing additions/deletions to the drives can be made. Any resulting combination of 14 HDD or SSD drives selected from the above list is supported. Different capacity disk drives can be mixed. HDDs and SSDs can be mixed. Note normal RAID array configuration considerations for drives in the 12 front bays would apply.

Using 6 TB drives in all 14 bays provides 84 TB system capacity.

The 12 SATA bays in the front of the server are hot plug. Normal data protection considerations by either OS mirroring or RAID protection apply. The two SATA bays in the rear of the server are not hot plug and scheduled downtime is required to safely add or remove a drive.

SATA controllers

The feature EC3Q storage mezzanine card is a SATA controller for the two bays in the rear of the server. It does not support RAID function. It is located in a dedicated slot in the system unit and does not require a PCIe slot.

There are two PCIe RAID adapters that can run the 12 SAS bays in the front of the server. If you want to run one or more drives in any of these 12 bays, one of these adapters is required:

  • PCIe LP internal SATA/SAS RAID 1 GB cache Adapter (#EC3S) with protected write cache
  • PCIe3 LP internal SATA/SAS RAID UP-Cache Adapter (#EC3Y) with unprotected write cache

The feature EC3S adapter in PCIe slot 4 and its super capacitor power protection is placed in PCIe slot 1. Thus two PCIe slots are required for this feature. If power is lost to the server, the super capacitor protects the contents of the write cache until power is restores. This protection can help avoid lengthy recovery times which can result when data is lost before written to an HDD or SSD. The adapter supports RAID 0, 1, 1E, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60 and supports hybrid RAID 1 and 10.

The feature EC3Y adapter is placed in PCIe slot 4. It offers a lower price than the feature EC3S adapter, but its smaller write cache is not protected in case the problems such as power loss to the server. It uses just one PCIe slot. The adapter supports RAID 0, 1, 1E, and 10.

Predefined base and quick-to-order configurations

To simply ordering and manufacturing of the Power S812LC server, specific predefined configurations are initially available from IBM. Ordering different initial configurations from IBM Manufacturing is not announced.

In summary, these predefined configurations are:

  • A base configuration as either 8-Core (#EHJU) or 10-Core (#EHJV)
  • Three quick-to-order configurations:
    • Feature EHJW including 8-Core, 32 GB memory and one 1 TB HDD

Integrated ports

Three USB 3.0 ports are provided. Two are on the rear and one is on the front of the server. A USB 1.0 port is also located on the rear of the server, but is not available for client use.

Three other ports are located on the rear of the server in addition to the above USB port:

  • One VGA port
  • One Serial over LAN port
  • One Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) port. This is 10M/100M baseT

Power supply

  • Two ac power supplies are required and are ordered using feature EB2Y (quantity two).
  • The power supply supports either 100-120 V or 200-240 V power sources. But using 200-240 V allows the power supply to support a heavier load (1200 watt versus 1000 watt). The power sources must be the same for the server, both 200-240 V or both 100-120 V.

Power cords

Two power cords are required. Two feature 6458 cords for attaching the server to one or two IBM PDUs are defaulted in the e-config tool. Refer to the feature listing for other power cord options.

Rack considerations

The Power S812LC requires 2U (2EIA) in a standard 19-inch rack such as the IBM 7014-T42, 7014-T00, or 7965-94Y. Included with the server are rails to mount the in an IBM or OEM rack. These are included without a separate feature number. The rails can be adjusted to fit racks which have depths from approximately 22.5 to 32 inches.

IBM Manufacturing does not provide rack integration with the Power S812LC system. The server is shipped separately. An IBM rack can be ordered and shipped separately.


Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The Power S812LC server brings POWER8 processor and memory RAS functions into a highly competitive cloud data center with open source Linux technology providing the operating system and virtualization.

The Open Power Abstraction Layer (OPAL) firmware provides a hypervisor and operating system-independent layer that uses the robust error detection and self-healing functions that are built into the POWER8 processor and memory buffer modules. The processor address-paths and data-paths are protected with parity or error-correction codes (ECC). The control logic, state machines, and computational units have sophisticated error detection. The processor core soft errors or intermittent errors are recovered with processor instruction retry. Unrecoverable errors are reported as machine check. Errors that affect the integrity of data lead to system check-stop.

The Level 1 (L1) data and instruction caches in each processor core are parity protected and data are stored through to L2 immediately. L1 caches have a retry capability for intermittent errors and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures. The L2 and L3 caches in the POWER8 processor and L4 cache in the memory buffer chip are protected with double-bit detect, single-bit ECC.

In addition, a threshold of correctable errors that are detected on cache lines can result in the data in the cache lines being purged and the cache lines removed from further operation without requiring a reboot. The L3 cache can dynamically substitute a spare bit-line for a faulty bit-lane, allowing an entire faulty "column" of cache, impacting multiple cache lines, to be repaired. An uncorrectable error that is detected in these caches can also trigger a purge and delete of cache lines. This results in no loss of operation if the cache lines contained data unmodified from what was stored in system memory.

The memory subsystem has proactive memory scrubbing to prevent the accumulation of multiple single-bit errors. The ECC scheme can correct the complete failure of any one memory module within an ECC word. After marking the module as unusable, the ECC logic can still correct single symbol (two adjacent bit) errors. An uncorrectable error of data of any layer of cache up to the main memory is marked to prevent usage of fault data. The processor's memory controller and the memory buffer have retry capabilities for certain fetch and store faults.

Special Uncorrectable Error handling

Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling prevents an uncorrectable error in memory or cache from immediately causing a machine check (MC) with uncorrectable error (UE). The system marks the data so that if the data is read again, it generates an MC with UE. Termination might be limited to the program/partition or hypervisor that owns the data. If the data is referenced by an I/O adapter, it freezes if data is transferred to an I/O device.

Thermal management, current/voltage monitoring

The On Chip Controller (OCC) monitors various temperature sensors in the processor module, memory modules, and environmental temperature sensors and steers the throttling of processor cores and memory channels if the temperature rises over thresholds that are defined by the design. The power supplies have their own independent thermal sensors and monitoring.

Power supplies and voltage regulator modules monitor over-voltage, under-voltage, and over-current conditions. They report into a power good tree that is monitored by the service processor.

Chassis policy after input power loss and auto restart after system-check-stop

The boot parameter "chassis policy" controls whether the server returns to the previous state or powers up axiomatically after an input power loss. The system automatically restarts after a system-check-stop, and it is up to the system management software to decide whether to use the server with potentially fewer resources.

Serviceability

The server is designed for system installation and setup, feature installation and removal, proactive maintenance, and corrective repair that is performed by the client:

  • Customer Install and Setup (CSU)
  • Customer Feature Install (CFI)
  • Customer Repairable Units (CRU)

Warranty Service Upgrades are offered for an Onsite Repair (OSR) by an IBM System Services Representative (SSR) or an authorized warranty service provider.

IBM Knowledge Center provides up-to-date documentation to effectively service the system:

  • Quick Installation Guide
  • User's Guide
  • Troubleshooting Guide
  • Boot Configuration Guide

The documentation can be downloaded in PDF format or used online with an Internet connection.

Service processor

The service processor supports the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI 2.0) and Data Center Management Interface (DCMI 1.5) for system monitoring and management. The service processor provides platform system functions such as power on/off, power sequencing, power fault monitoring, power reporting, fan/thermal control, fault monitoring, VPD inventory collection, Serial over LAN (SOL), Service Indicator LED management, code update, and event reporting through System Event Logs (SEL). All SELs can be retrieved either directly from the service processor or from the host OS (Linux). The service processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The firmware code update is supported through the service processor and IPMI interface. Multiple firmware images exist in the system, and the backup copy is used if the primary image is corrupted and unusable.

Service interface

The service interface enables clients and support personnel to communicate with the service support applications in a server by using a browser. It delivers a clear, concise view of available service applications. The service interface allows the support client to manage system resources and service information in an efficient and effective way.

Different service interfaces are used, depending on the state of the system, hypervisor, and operating environment. These are the primary service interfaces:

  • Service processor: Ethernet Service Network with IPMI version 2.0
  • Service indicator LEDs: System attention and system identification (front and back)
  • Service processor: Ethernet Service Network with IPMI version 2.0
  • Host operating system: Command-line interface

Concurrent maintenance

The following components can be replaced without powering off the server:

  • Drives in the front bay
  • Power supplies

Error handling and reporting

In the event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. The CEC recoverable errors are handled through the CEC diagnostics capability in a Linux application and generates a System Event Log (SEL). One eSEL contains extra FFDC from the Hostboot, OCC, and OPAL subsystems that is associated with each SEL. For system checkstop errors, On Chip Controller (OCC) collects FIR data to PNOR and hostboot CEC diagnostics creates a SEL based on the FIR data in PNOR. When the system can be successfully restarted either manually or automatically, or if the system continues to operate, the host Linux OS can monitor the SELs on the service processor through the IPMI tool. Hardware and software failures are recorded in the SELs and can be retrieved through IPMI interface. The reporting of SELs in the system log of the operating system is planned.

The system can report errors that are associated with PCIe adapters/devices as well.

Products - terms and conditions

Warranty period

To obtain copies of the IBM Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or IBM.

Three years

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to the full warranty period specified by IBM. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

The following have been designated as consumables or supply items and are, therefore, not covered by this warranty:

  • Time and Date Battery
Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service, depending on the type of warranty service specified below for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM Web site. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines On-site Service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country and location-specific information.

The type of service is Customer Replaceable Unit or Parts Only Service.

Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) Service

IBM provides a replacement CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM at any time on your request. Based upon availability, a CRU will be shipped for next-business-day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

Advanced Part Exchange Warranty Service

Advanced Part Exchange warranty service allows you to order and track replacement parts directly under Customer Replaceable Unit or Parts Only Service following procedures that are provided by IBM. Replacement parts are shipped to your location for you to install. IBM will use commercially reasonable delivery methods to ship the replacement part for NBD delivery. Advanced Part Exchange warranty service is not available in all countries. You must be approved and registered to use this service. Contact your IBM representative or your reseller for further information.

International Warranty Service

International Warranty Service allows you to relocate any machine that is eligible for International Warranty Service and receive continued warranty service in any country where the IBM machine is serviced. If you move your machine to a different country, you are required to report the machine information to your Business Partner or IBM representative.

The warranty service type and the service level provided in the servicing country may be different from that provided in the country in which the machine was purchased. Warranty service will be provided with the prevailing warranty service type and service level available for the eligible machine type in the servicing country, and the warranty period observed will be that of the country in which the machine was purchased.

The following types of information can be found on the International Warranty Service website:

  • Machine warranty entitlement and eligibility
  • Directory of contacts by country with technical support contact information
  • Announcement Letters
http://www.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?lndocid=GCOR-3FBJK2

Service level is:

  • 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, next-business-day response. Calls must be received by 5:00 PM local time in order to qualify for next-business-day response with 100% CRU.

Warranty services

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to their customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

Warranty service upgrades

During the warranty period, warranty service upgrades provide an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. See the Warranty services section above for additional details.

IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts.

Maintenance service options

The following on-site response-time objectives are available as warranty service upgrades for your machine. Available offerings are:

  • 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, 4-hour average, same-business-day response
  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 4-hour average response, same day
  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 2-hour average response, same day

Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) may be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty CRU Service except that you may install a CRU yourself or request IBM installation, at no additional charge, under the specified above. For additional information on the CRU Service, see the warranty information.


Maintenance services

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of maintenance service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically, via an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies.

Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of maintenance service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information. The following service selections are available as maintenance options for your machine type.

On-site Service

IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service levels are:

  • 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, next-business-day response
  • 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, 4-hour average response, same business day
  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 4-hour average response, same day
  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 2-hour average response, same day
